More and more sportfishing boats are arriving at Marina Casa de Campo each day and excitement is starting to mount for the inaugural Casa de Campo Blue Marlin Classic scheduled for March 20th to 24th.
Thanks to great tournament sponsors like Casa de Campo, Costa del Mar, Toy Box, Heineken Beer, Baja Lures, Johnny Walker Black, Mojo, CocaCola, Shimano, Bost Lures, AFTCO, Panama Jack, Pompanette, Europcar, Mustad, Jarrett Bay and many others along with the participation of so many of our friends from the top teams that fish the Caribbean Circuit, things are taking shape and all indications are that we are in for a great tournament.
Observer Coordinator Tracey Preston reports that there is a group of highly experienced Certified Observers that have signed up for the event to ensure that IGFA guidelines and tournament rules are followed and most importantly, to prevent rule infractions.
Onshore activities are being carefully and tastefully coordinated by committee members Vilma, Alicia and Jesmin with great music, entertainment, great food and fine spirits so that all attendees will have an awesome time during the event.
Last but not least, by popular demand, the tournament committee has unanimously decided to make this a 30-pound-test tournament. Many of you had suggested this and we listened.
